Guys, I just bought an ultrawide VA 34" monitor. My existing graphic card is an AMD Radeon HD 6700 series, which has a DisplayPort v1.1, the monitor needs v1.2 onwards, so I can't get the higher resolutions.
What GPU cards can you recommend for my 2011 spec PC? I need DP v1.4, at least 1 HDMI and DVI port. I built my PC nine years ago and mainly use it for work, and I only play old school DOOM these days but might try something newer.
My PC specs:
Any advice would be appreciated!
I'm finally thinking about making the switch to PC, but I just need some advice if these specs are any good, and if they're good enough for the next couple of years at least.
I'm doing a new build with my RTX 2060 as a starting point. First question. What CPU would cause closest to 0% bottleneck? Second question. What motherboard would best fit with these + having the potential to upgrade the CPU in one, two, or even three years? Thank you.
I'm currently playing Need for Speed, Crysis Remastered, Call of Duty, all with no performance issues on my Core i7-6700K GTX 1070SC system. More recently, I have started playing Flight Simulator and found my system cannot handle it without significant frame loss.
What CPU/GPU combo would you recommend for the highest quality settings at 1440p 144Hz? I'm hoping these upgrades could carry with me if I decide to go 4K in the future.
I believe it is time to upgrade my whole system build as it is now nearing the bottom of the scale for gaming, but my budget is limited to $3000. I had to modify my case to fit my GPU. I want to step up to 4K, but I know this budget doesn't allow for that. Games I like are:
My current build:
The ASUS ROG Strix B550-F Gaming motherboard indicates that RAM up to 3200MHz will run at that cycle out of the box without overclocking. Is that correct? But anything higher, e.g., 3600, would require overclocking, hopefully just by enabling DOCP, although in some cases, other parameters seem to require tweaking.
I see this referred to as the sweet spot for Ryzen, but if DOCP is disabled as the default setting, and overclocking to achieve advertised cycles can introduce instability, the lower MHz seems better, especially as the clock latency is lower at 16 as opposed to 18. The CPU would be either Ryzen 5 5600X or 5600 when it comes out.
My main requirement is for a cool, quiet, very stable system, so can you advise which Corsair non-RGB 2 x 8GB RAM would be better?
I have just built a new PC. I have an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 and an AMD Ryzen 9 5900X. I currently have a 1920x1080 Full HD 144Hz monitor 31.5". I play FPS games.
Is it worth upgrading my monitor? If so, what to? I'm unsure if I should go to 2K or 4K. Is it necessary to be 1ms? I want to keep the same size.
I am looking to buy my daughter a gaming PC, but I have no idea where to begin! I am hoping you can help me and tell me exactly what specs I need within the tower to allow the following games to run with decent graphics, no lagging - and run as a PC, where she can do homework, stream, etc.
Thank you in advance, Kaley!
Just a quick question! When gaming, do games rely on single-core performance or multi-core performance? Since I'm building an Intel gaming PC, I'm having issues choosing between a Core i5 9600K or a 10th-gen Intel Core CPU.
Also, could you check if my PC parts work well and any suggestions for better performance or upgrades?
I want to upgrade my graphics card, but I don't know where to start. Here are the specs of my PC:
I don't know where to start. Please help me!
